Scoop out the muscle balm with your fingers or a spoon — the texture can be a little firm at first, but when warmed between fingertips or palms it transform it into a soft and silky texture that is perfect for massage. Massage the balm into any areas that feel sore or tight for 10-15 minutes to allow the CBD to penetrate deeply into skin. This balm can be used pre or post exercise and is specially formulated to stay on skin through workouts
What our customers are saying
Why You’ll Love the CBD Balm
Made for massage: Few things soothe sore, achy muscles like a massage. Team it with a scoop of the CBD Muscle Balm to help fingertips work into even the most stubborn knots.
Cooling and calming: You’ve got the eucalyptus to thank for that. Each scoopful of balm feels cooling on skin and the scent is instantly calming. We’ve also added aloe, arnica, limonene and linalool for their homeopathic powers.
Triple lab tested: Like our oils and capsules, the CBD Muscle Balm is triple lab tested by our team of scientists, ensuring you get the very best CBD extract hemp plants can offer. You’re even able to trace each product from farm to bottle with a full batch code.
Vegetarian-friendly and nasties-free: The balm is not only vegetarian-friendly, but it’s also free of THC, sulphates and GMOs. No nasties over here.
100% recyclable: Once you’ve reached the bottom of the jar (and this can take a while – trust us), the packaging is 100% recyclable. That includes the jar and the lid.
How do you use CBD muscle balm?
It’s easy – grab a scoopful from the jar and smooth it directly onto your skin. Focus it in specific areas as you eke out knots with the palms of your hands and your fingertips. Some massage techniques to try include:
For your neck
Relax your neck by lifting and dropping your shoulders, before slowly tucking your chin down into your chest. Hold this stretch for a few breaths.
Warm the CBD Muscle Balm in the palms of your hands and gently press the back of your neck. Then, use two fingers to massage the area where your neck and shoulders meet, avoiding the spine.
For your shoulders
Start by applying the CBD Muscle Balm to your right hand, then use it to reach over your left shoulder and gently but firmly squeeze the muscle.
Roll your left shoulder backwards, so it’s pushing into your hand as you press. When you feel tension start to loosen, repeat on the other side.
For your hands
Get a little of the CBD Muscle Balm in the palms of your hands, rub it in, then hold your right hand with fingers outstretched and the palm facing upwards. Wrap your left hand around it, so your thumb is resting on the palm.
Use this left thumb to trace the edge of your right hand in small, circular motions, and gradually massage inwards until you reach the centre of the palm. Then repeat these steps on your other hand.
Frequently Asked Questions
Infused with a tingle of eucalyptus and the sweetest citrusy scent, the melting texture of the CBD Muscle Balm is designed to make it easy to give yourself a massage. Reach for a scoopful and work it right into knots whenever you’re feeling tense; it helps fingertips glide over skin, so you can swiftly target tightness, whenever and wherever you need to.
At Cannaray HQ, one of our favourite ways to use the CBD Muscle Balm is before and after a workout. And did you know? Massaging muscles pre-exercise can help to warm them up, so you feel more limber when you move.
Try it out on areas that are prone to tightness, using the CBD Muscle Balm as you quickly sweep hands over arms and legs before you work up a sweat. Then, post-exercise, rub any achy muscles with fingertips, using the balm to help you move hands in circular motions without pulling on your skin.
Everyone on our team also likes to keep a jar on their desks for when shoulders and necks start to feel tight. A scoopful in between meetings can help you tackle tension – and the fragrance is ultra-uplifting, too.
This isn’t a skin balm; it’s a muscle balm, which means its main goal is to help you do a massage with ease. However, the ingredients inside are super-gentle on your skin. We’ve packed it with Aloe, Arnica and Shea Butter, which are all hydrating and nourishing, so even those with dry skin can enjoy using the balm.
But one of our favourite benefits is how it sticks to your skin, allowing you to apply it even before a workout, without worrying that it might rub off during exercise. Even the highest-powered cardio is no match for this balm, so rub it into muscles, put on your gym gear and go.
